MLB 11 The Show News Post


Steve Berthiaume gets my respect, not only for being a gamer and playing MLB The Show, but for his skills in creating players. Check out the article over at ESPN.

I know everyone has different methods for creating players, but I can get with what Steve was using for his formulas. Pretty cool that a guy that you know works long hours at ESPN is into creating players and playing a game that we all love, MLB The Show.

Great read!!! Steve Berthiaume is my favorite ESPN anchor...so much in fact, that when he's hosting BBTN, he's kept me from completing multiple franchise games with my Yanks! "Oh, Steve's hosting...only getting in one game tonight."

It's refreshing to see a person with a wonderful career, get the same basic joy out of this baseball sim as the rest of.

He's mentioned the game on the show before. Huh, who knew?

Thanks. I was just surfing around on ESPN and clicked on the baseball page and saw a video box that mentioned MLB The Show. I figured it would be your standard video, but both guys in the video clearly are gamers (I love the Toolshed reference to Online gamers) and know their stuff. They were up front about not using Analog and going with the Classic controls.

Then, I read the article and was really impressed. I think Knight should recruit SB to help put together some rosters.

No problem. I'm curious, Knight, what do you think of SB's formulas for creating players? How similar is it to what you do?

Reading that article makes me want to start working on some rosters myself.

LOL make a lobby called tool shed for all tools to go play there

nice find.

it must be awesome being Steve. you can narrate your own highlights!!

edit: as a rule of thumb, i stay away from places called the "tool shed", unless it's actually a shed that houses my tools.

Great Read! I commented on the article and told Steve to come on over to operations sports and see the work that is put into rosters that Knight over sees each year.

Great find. It's cool to see people who are really into the games just like the rest of us.

I think we may have found a volunteer for a highlight show in future versions of the game.

Tool shed! LOL. That made me laugh really hard.

Those gents are sim!

Thanks for posting/sharing.

How cool would it be to have some kind of Baseball Tonight integration for future titles...

Thank you so much for sharing that.

I would have never seen it on my own.

Good read. Just shows what a wonderful game the Show has been to people of different backgrounds! Who knows Alissa Milano might be doing the same thing with the Show!

Shameless plug: I'll be trying to do something similar to find conversions between the stats and the rating attributes; check out my progress in the roster forum in the next few weeks if you are curious and have feedback. Hoping to put my OCD to good use!

Very much actually.
All the numbers I use as my "base" numbers were directly taken from simming...simming...simming and comparing to players in the game. League Leaders....the team statistics page.....
From '06(the second '06) to '08...I would write down pages and pages of statistics----->ratings....ratings------->statistics and trying to decipher why one 80 contact guy hit .300 and the other 80 contact guy hit .270....power numbers in relation to HR's and 2B's...played off contact...vice versa.
After years of doing it....I was actually able to throw away the sheets and just look at a guys numbers and play them off each other.
But it all boiled down to what this guy says in his article.

Now...that being said....we had an ESPN guy on this site...who did rosters and he and I actually had a little head to head (not the good kind). I won't get into details...but I wonder if it's the same guy. I don't think he'd have kind words to say about me if it is.
